We just close our eyes till its all black everything

from Lupe Fiasco – All Black Everything Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Play on words where upon closing their eyes, a person can imagine the proposed world of the song freely and when your eyes are closed, pretty much everything is black. A common misconception is that this line is referring to an idealist society of only blacks, but in reality it is speaking about a society of total equality in which all people are considered to be “black” or entirely equal. Lupe knows that society isn’t ideal right now, but we can close our eyes and imagine what it could look like and then strive towards that goal.
